La Crosse, WI (April 26, 2023): The City of La Crosse’s Forward La Crosse Public Input Campaign has posted early preliminary drafts of the Comprehensive Plan Chapters for Community Feedback at forwardlacrosse.org. The posted chapters are being shared with the public for input following an extensive community engagement period. The topic areas of the Comprehensive Plan have been separated out to allow for easy review.
Disclaimer: These draft chapters of the La Crosse Comprehensive Plan are being shared for public review and feedback following an extensive phase 1 community engagement process. The following content is still in draft form and is subject to revisions and changes as the Comprehensive Plan is finalized. Following the public comment period, the chapters will be re-formatted into a stylized report format.
Each topic area survey is expected to take about 2-5 minutes to complete, and there are 8 topic areas. All questions are optional, and participants can submit the survey at any time and can provide feedback on as many drafts as they prefer. The survey closes on Monday May 15th, 2023.
The City of La Crosse has been soliciting community feedback via its Forward La Crosse Campaign since April 2022 and has seen significant participation in surveys comparable to similar size cities. See previous media on participation here.
As reflected by the community engagement response rate, community members have been active in the 12 Surveys available at forwardlacrosse.org and the La Crosse Public Library on Main St.
Additionally, the City of La Crosse hosted many in-person opportunities at monthly Neighborhood Associations Meetings throughout La Crosse.
Additional information on the Comprehensive Plan can be found at forwardlacrosse.org.
